Share Article

Richard Wanderer, author of the fictional suspense novel, "The Holiday Party (A Tale of a Corporate Takeover)", takes his readers on a journey they will want to keep turning the pages on.

In Richard Wanderer's fictional suspense novel, "The Holiday Party (A Tale of a Corporate Takeover)", a huge, for profit only, media conglomerate takes over a family owned national magazine which was run in an employee friendly manner. The conglomerate comes and institutes a Draconian cost cutting regime and fires loyal employees of the takeover magazine for little or no cause (mostly because in the eyes of the takeover conglomerate they made too much money). Ironically, the magazine's employees' efforts had made the magazine a profitable enterprise and a great takeover target. He captures his readers' attention right from the start.

Beginning his tale with a raging holiday snowstorm in Manhattan and a lead character in the novel racing through it to get to a Wicca coven meeting then the author carries the readers across the continent to an elegant business Christmas Party in Los Angeles.
